I am looking to get a parka for this winter. Something fairly simple with not many pockets and flaps and all of that nonsense. I am going to be wearing it over my suits when it is frigid here in NYC. The thing is I am looking for one that is not made in China. I found an awesome United Bamboo one, but they discontinued operations in Japan over the last year and are producing it in China now. Granted the price came down, I am not buying from my Country's economic rival. Does anybody have an ideas?

i'm 100% with you, "made in USA" is the only way to go.

Not quite... I am looking for something down lined, fur on the hood and less military inspired. Simple pockets on the sides and cut right above the knee.

I was looking for the chateau parka last year and I couldn't find one, maybe this year will be different. Thanks.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
